MA English Literature
The MA in English Literature allows you to deepen your passion for literature while developing the rigorous specialist skills essential to postgraduate-level research. With the help and support of one of the leading English departments in the country, we aim to provide a stimulating and challenging intellectual experience in a friendly, supportive environment.
The programmes offers three pathways (Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature; Romantic and Victorian Literature; 20th-century and Contemporary Literature) which build on the core research strengths of the department. If you wish to focus on a particular period you may follow a single pathway. Alternatively, if you want to broaden your engagement with English literature, you may choose a combination of pathways and optional units. All students are taught the specialist skills required for postgraduate-level research and the practical skills that academic life demands. Everyone is expected to enter fully into the wider academic community of the department and the University.
Following successful completion of the taught course, you must complete a dissertation of 15,000 words maximum.
Optional units can vary each year but may include:
Out State Tuition (per year): 15,500 GBP
Classification: Higher Education Institution (Not Carnegie Classified)
Locale: Midsize City
